About the book:
Susy Flory's life was a lot like her couch--comfy, slumberous, and safe. She was a happy suburban wife and mom who enjoyed her couch-like cocoon and avoided suffering and uncomfortable situations at all costs. Then she met Rosie... Eleanor...Elizabeth...and Jane. Now, her life will never be the same.
So Long, Status Quo is the powerful story of how nine amazing historical women inspired a suburban mom to abandon her safe, sheltered, vanilla existence for a life of passion, service, and significance. With challenging insight and honesty, Susy Flory shares about her struggles with selfishness and complacency and tells how the lives of these fascinating women challenged her to get up off her couch and embark on a quest for something more. Venturing into unusual and even dangerous places, she followed their example and found herself working alongside local immigrant farm workers, serving needy children on a secret humanitarian mission to Cuba, feeding homeless people at midnight, helping to reach out to sexually trafficked teens, and selling her jewelry to fund freshwater wells in Darfur, Sudan.
Inspiring, convicting, and transformational, So Long, Status Quo challenges women to examine their lives and answer this question: what are you doing to get God's work done in the world? Whether it's by sharing your faith like Perpetua or getting your hands dirty like Rosie the Riveter, Susy's story invites women of all ages to say goodbye to their old, couch-comfy lives and become women who make a difference in their world.
